Dating a newly separated guy
So everyday since I’m up at midnight, I log in and get my 7 new exciting matches. That’s active, open, matches, that I’ve sent my multiple choice questions over to, and I’m patiently waiting for their response. In ADDITION to the 748 matches I am currently waiting for a response for, I have also 436 archived matches and 721 matches I’ve closed out. So you’re saying I matched on 29 levels of compatibility with almost 2000 women in San Diego?
So before you know it, you’re waiting on 5 girls to respond back, and then it’s 10, then 20, then 50! As of tonight I was in stage 1, waiting for 748 matches to respond back to me from stage 1. You’re probably thinking Steven, you should be more selective anyways, you can’t just be communicating with every person you get matched with. So all together I have been matched with 1905 and different females. Or whats more likely is you sent me every girl in San Diego in 7 girl increments.
Because I know about cumulative binomial probability. I actually posted this question to eharmony on their facebook wall. I have no idea why my matches don’t just close out the match if they’re not interested.
In any case, I’m baffled as to why girls just don’t close out the match if they’re not interested. What’s more likely is eharmony never deletes accounts, so I’m matched with girls that joined for the free weekend 6 months ago, and don’t even know they have a message from me in their queue.
You don’t even notice that she hasn’t responded because your distracted by the new excitement of these new matches.
But then, you start realizing, wait a minute, no ones responding back to you.
Another thing I don’t like about eharmony is all the fucking ads. Not only are they’re charging me about 30 bucks a month, they also bombard me with ads!?
There’s always a chance that she decides 5 months later, yep, todays the day I answer that guys multiple choice questions.
And me being a man of statistics and math, knows that even though it’s only a half percent chance she will actually respond, that’s half a percent chance for every single one of the 748 girls.
Two dates where I was probably settling, compromising and giving in, just to go on dates. Not at all, they were perfectly normal, fine people, just not the match for me. It’s literally a 40 minute survey asking you the same question 37 different ways.
First thing you have to do is fill out the SATs of online dating.
I know right, how ridiculous is it to be “communicating” with 50 different girls all at the same time, all waiting for them to respond. What’s most upsetting about this shenanigans is that I am waiting for 748 girls to get back to me, with stage 1 questions.
